My daughter was in a halloween costume contest today and won! She was so excited! I really think that she won because we made her costume rather than her wearing a store bought one. She was a piece of pizza. It turned out very cute. We made it out of a big box, just cut it in the shape of a slice, painted it red for the sauce, shredded paper for the cheese and cut out mushroom and pepperoni that we glued on. It was so easy, yet, she was the hit of the party. The other winners were a cowboy (homemade outfit) and an elephant which was a baby. Do you like the homemade costumes better than the store bought ones? What are some of your favorite costumes?
